Monterey Institute Professor Gordon M. Hahn was interviewed for by Voice of America's Russian-language service reporter Michael Gutkin for an article published today titled "Experts Note Activization of the North Caucasus Militants." Professor Hahn, a senior research fellow in the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program (MonTREP), particularly notes the declaration by area jihadists of the “Caucasus Emirate” as a factor in the recent increase in attacks on Russian authorities in the region. The article is available online in the original Russian or translated to English. The Institute’s new master’s degree in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies builds on the expertise and teaching resources of MonTREP and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
